'Peter Brett takes the reader with him and his characters on an electric and unrelenting charge through the demon-haunted depths of the Warded universe, full of love and death' Naomi Novik, Sunday Times bestselling author of UPROOTED 'An intricately crafted tale of intrigue and courage where one's station and lineage determines everything, good and bad. An exciting read. Peter Brett has outdone himself with this first book in a new series.' #1 New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks 'The Desert Prince is a deeply intimate, yet epic adventure. Heart-wrenching, smart, and modern, this book kept me wide-eyed and wide awake for many-a-nights as I struggled step-for-step alongside Olive and Darin from the green lands to the desert pits to the darkest recesses of the demon minds. The Desert Prince has set a new standard for fantasy.' Wesley Chu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the War Arts Saga 'THE DESERT PRINCE is the work of a master at the top of his game. The new cast of would-be heroes instantly draw you into a world full of old dangers as Brett cranks up the tension to unbearable levels. If you're going to read this book, cancel all your plans because there's no way you'll be able to put it down once you start. This is the best Peter V Brett book so far.'

Martin, Steven Erikson, and Robert Jordan' Fantasy Book Critic
